HEAVENLY BODIES 35 Years of Drastic on Plastic


Celebrate women in music with RTRFM’s Heavenly Bodies, which will kick of Fremantle Festival on Friday October 27.

Stella Donnelly (pictured above), Rabbit Island, Em Burrows and Friends, Ruby May, Akioka and Michelle Harpist will fill St John’s Anglican Church to celebrate 35 years of Drastic on Plastic.

Few artists in Perth this year have captured the RTRFM listener like Stella Donnelly, her irreverent and unique take on the world, captured perfectly in her honest and moving song-writing, has led to her being one of the most played performers on RTRFM this year.

Rabbit Island has captured the imagination of WA music fans for ten years with her soaring vocals and magical songwriting. Catch her with a full band, made up of her musical and life-long mates.

Em Burrows never stops making music, whether it be with her band The Bearded Rainbow or solo, she is a force to be reckoned with and has a grasp on the musical world like very few before her.

A relative new-comer to the WA Musical landscape and backed by her eight-piece band, Ruby May’s voice will soar across the church as she belts out her unique take on psyche rock.

Akioka makes music in her bedroom. DIY to the very core, she makes incredibly intricate and marvelous beats.

Michelle Harpist is a classically trained Harp player who has shared the stage with a number of WA performers. A major part of Mathas’ live make up, her harp transcends beyond the traditional.

RTRFM’s Heavenly Bodies: 35 Years of Drastic on Plastic takes over St John’s Anglican Church in Fremantle on Friday, October 27.
